Interlibrary Loan system – restored

September 28, 2011

The interlibrary loan system has been restored. If you have questions about a request, contact the Interlibrary Loan department at 303-458-4263.

Our interlibrary loan system is currently unavailable due to a server crash at the vendor. This means that both our users and our staff do not have access to the system at this time. We will post more information as it becomes available.
